FAPFAP – Korean Jeon

Ok, so we taught you how to make Pajeon in our last FAPFAP. It’s SO EASY TO MAKE. You have no excuse to not make it. But what about other kinds of Jeon? What about Kimchijeon, which is better than Pajeon? You neeeeeed to knooowww the truuuuth.

So we’re gonna show you the truth. Here’s us eating a bunch of different Jeon, which – on the menu – is Modum Jeon. Modem Jeon? I don’t know. All we know is this: we’ve been to a lot of different Jeon places. This is our favourite in Hongdae. There are more popular ones, like that giant one by the Hongik Station with the baskets of Jeon spilling outside (you know the one, right?), but that Jeon is greasy as hell, and once gave us food poisoning. This place, though, is our favourite spot. It’s close to our studio, and we go there often.

Funny story time! One time when we were going to this place, we ran into a guy who stopped us. I can’t remember his name because I’m a bad person STOP MAKING ME FEEL GUILTY OK?! Point is, he stopped us and said he watched our video, right when we were about to go inside. What’s interesting about it: he went to University of Toronto, where we went. Even more interesting, he went to Woodsworth College, which I – Simon – went to. Even more interesting: he was the Frosh leader, back when I went to orientation, AND HE FREAKING REMEMBERED ME! Not like “oh, I’ve seen your videos, I remember you,” but “you were at Frosh week, I remember you!” Can I tell you how mind blowing that was? I was such a different person back then: buff as hell, wearing only basketball jerseys, long hair, sullen and eml and depressed, barely contributing anything to any conversation, not anywhere close to as obnoxious as I am now. And I – somehow – stood out in this guy’s mind. Either he’s amazing with people and names, which I clearly am not, or he’s a wizard. I’m impressed. So, point of the story: we met him outside of the restaurant we often go to.

Ok, back to being informative and stuff. Jeon is delicious. Yep.

FAPFAP – Korean Jeon

  1. I don’t know if you take requests for videos, but I know of a place that I went to while studying abroad in Korea that I think you might enjoy. It’s called Empada and it’s a small cafe near Dankook University in the Jukjeon Yogin (I hope I spelled that right) area. It’s located behind the Caffe Bene. They sell really delicious homemade empanadas and they have various kinds. They also make Baby Dutch Pancakes that are to die for!!! I believe that everything they serve is homemade actually. It’s a small place, but really delicious and I think it’s something you might enjoy. The owner speak English very well too so it won’t be hard to communicate if you have any questions for him.

  7. I remember going to Korea back in 2009 December and I ate some green pancake things at Nami Island and they were DELICIOUS AS FK xD I wanna go back there just to eat those again ;~;
    I just searched for it, they’re called hoddeok. And apparently lots of people say the one at Nami Island is the best for them xD

  10. Yeah, I like Makgeolli and Pepto Bismol is nowhere near how I would describe it. More like a milky Sake- which it kind-of is. It is simply put a kind of rice beer. I actually prefer Makgeolli over soju. But if you want more Korean booze, try keeping your eyes out of a Raspberry Wine. I love it. The one I tried had a mix of fruit and grains, so it wasn’t too sweet.

  12. I love Pepto Bismal, when I was younger I used to chug down bottles until my parents took it. I still love it, guess I’m the only one.

  13. Sung Soh is correct in general. But specialty restaurants(like the one in video) and stalls in traditional markets are more likely to use pig lard. It’s a bit of nightmare situation for vegetarians and Muslims.

  17. Are there vegetarian jeons? (I’m sure there are, but are they easily found in regular jeon restaurants?)

  18. I must eat Korean Jeon… It looks so delicious, the first time I heard about it was when Eli and AJ from U-Kiss made it on Seri`s Star Kitchen, (of course it must be way better if it`s made by Eli but, anyways…. *fangirling*)… then Martina made it and now FAPFAP, oh God why wasn`t I born in Korea??? what am I doing with my life??

  19. O__O jaejoong has a restaurant?! wha? what’s this madness?! where is this?

    3 years ago
    • Yep~~ It’s in the Gangnam area, called Bum’s Story. It’s kind of a Korean/Japanese fusion restaurant and, as it is Jaejoong, mostly stuff that goes well while drinking. A bit on the expensive side so I don’t go very often (I think I’ve been maybe 4-5 times in the 2 years I’ve been in Korea…) but it’s definitely a cool experience. ^_^ (He also has a coffee shop called Coffee Cojjee which is pretty nice. Really good coffee. XD)

  20. Haha! Don’t take it too seriously. It doesn’t taste like pepto bismol. Simon just has bad juju about makgeolli. Go try it for yourself and decide.

  21. I suck at names to xD Funny thing is that I’m great at faces, it doesn’t matter if I’ve never talk to the person before. So sometimes I meet someone again and I can’t remember if I forgot the name or we just haven’t been introduced to each other

    And we have something similar to Jeon, we call it “Capeado” but it is kinda greasy if I buy it. If we make it is less greasy ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

  23. Omg. I love Jeon so much, it made me pretty happy that you guys posted the recipe video to show the special EYK edition (Even though most recipes are nearly the same lol) <3 BUT NOW IM REALLY JEALOUS. The only time I can eat or get jeon is if I make it for dinner or I bus for 20 minutes TT^TT And the restaurants only have like Pajeon or Kimchijeon. Sigh.

  24. Oh Simon, I’m right there with you. I’m terrible, horrible at names. Names of people, song titles, actors, you name it. I feel really bad when someone I went to high school with sees me and remembers my name but I have no clue what their name is. It’s really wonderful that he remembered you even with your shift into the person you are today.

    What baffles me personally is that I can’t remember someones name when I meet them but I managed to remember all the members of Exo pretty much just for the fun of it. 8 of them in one day, I already knew four. I should apply my skills better XD

  25. It all looks so yummy! The way you described the gochu jeon reminds me of a chili relleno. You take a long green chili, hollow it out, stuff it with a cheese (usually a white cheese), then batter it and fry to deliciousness. I’ve even seen some stuffed with meat but normally it’s cheese.

    3 years ago
    • I’ve learned recently that people use different types of peppers to make them. I’m so use to the long green chiles that I’m not sure I would like other variations. Also I’ve found I don’t enjoy chili rellenos when the chili is still kind raw/hard or the fried part is too greasy.

  35. Was that including the 8,000 won makgeolli you big spender? I like makgeolli. I guess I am a chalky pepto bismol loving kind of alcoholic.

    I can’t drink right now because of the meds. I look at my punche a creme bottle and sigh.

  39. It all seemed really yummy. I tend to do fried things like these a lot at home. Yet, it is hard to find some ingredients here, mostly because people are afraid of trying new stuff!!! Come to Brazil Simon and Martina, I’d be more than happy to show Brazilian food. Each of the 26 states in Brazil, because Brazil is so big, we have an incredible variety of food and it’s so, so different from state to state … I’ll be sending you some post cards from Brazil, to do some serious arm twisting with you guys!!!

    • oh yeah, totally agree… Brazilian food is FREAKING DELICIOUS! I miss it so much :`(…. anyways, Simon and Martina would absolutely love to make FAPFAPs in Brazil…
